After the 5-15 start to the season for the New York Knicks, there is no doubting that changes need to be made.
Many feel that the first man to go needs to be Knicks head coach Mike Woodson.
We have gotten to the point that it isn’t if Woodson will be let go, but when. After the Knicks latest embarrassing loss, Tuesday night to the Cleveland Cavaliers, it appears that Woodson’s seat is hotter than ever.
According to the New York Post’s Marc Berman, Woodson is “in trouble” after the Knicks latest pair of debacles that have the Knicks tied for the worst record in the Eastern Conference.
Sadly, while the Knicks aren’t anywhere close to being a championship caliber team, they are only 3.5 games out of first place in the sad Atlantic Division, so the season could be partially saved.
That means Woodson could go sooner, rather than later.
Whether you are a supporter of Woodson or not, we have gotten to the point where a change has to be made.
Nothing Woodson tries has worked and it likely won’t work in the future.
He’s still a coach that has never made it out of the second round of the playoffs and it’s hard to envision him ever doing so with this Knicks team.
His teams continue to be dreadful in the first and third quarters and that has cost the Knicks dearly. To Woodson’s credit there have been injuries and this team really doesn’t have the quality depth that many may have thought coming into the season, but a change has to be made.
There have been plenty of rumors on who the next Knicks coach will be if Woodson is ousted.
One thing is for sure and that is if the Knicks don’t show up Wednesday night against the Chicago Bulls, we could find out that answer sooner, rather than later.
